Texas Fails on Children in Disasters Report #GetReadyGetSafe

Not cool, Texas............not cool.

According to Save The Children's 2013 Report on Children in Disasters, Texas scored unsatisfactory in 1 of 4 categories.

When a disaster occurs (heaven forbid) and your child's life is potentially in danger, our state failing at just 1 out of 4 categories is not okay.

Am I right, Texas Mommas?!





























Even with all the school tragedies that have transpired in the last 2 years, most states still fail to meet basic child-safety measures for taking action when a disaster occurs.

Only 4 states, currently meet all 4 basic requirements for protecting children in case of a disaster.........and Texas is NOT one of them. 

In Texas, it looks like we're on our way, but still fail to have a best practice   safety plan for children with disabilities

Spreading the word about this concern can lead to positive action by policy makers here in Texas.

So, let's take action NOW! 




Click on the 2013 US Preparedness Map here to see if YOUR state has measures in place to protect your children.  

If your state (like mine) doesn't meet all 4 criteria on Protecting Children in Disasters, follow the prompt to send your governor a letter to take immediate action!

Let's keep our children safe!
